Wine Review: This opaque and pitch black colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a mild wet stone and black currant like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, smooth and nicely balanced. The flavor profile is a mild black currant and gentle blackberry with a hint of black olive, minerality and gentle oak. The finish is dry and its moderate building tannins linger for a little while. This wine would pair well with a ribeye steak. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2009 Tench Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon offers blueberry and boysenberry flavors that harmonize with a background of spice and herb. This wine is elegant and balanced between the juicy fruit and the vanilla from the oak. A coating, velvety texture is expansive and refreshing as the soft, supple tannins carry the flavors into a long finish.
